Anything for ice cream

Police cuffed a guy for stealing a carton of ice cream from a Myrtle Avenue supermarket, and then punching an employee in the face on Oct. 4, police said.

The suspect grabbed the Talenti ice cream from the freezer inside the market near Grand Avenue at about 6:10 pm, and when an employee tried to stop him, the suspect punched and elbowed him — knocking out some of his teeth — and then spit at him, according to authorities.

Guns out

A baddie swiped a teen’s phone and wallet after threatening him with a gun on Park Avenue on Oct. 2, police said.

The victim told cops he was walking home near Hall Street at about 9 pm when the ruffian brandished a firearm and then grabbed his iPhone and wallet, with his identification card and debit card inside, officials said.

Creeping up

Police arrested a guy for tormenting an oldster and breaking into his Carlton Avenue apartment on Oct. 1.

The 81-year-old victim told police the suspect broke into his apartment near Greene Avenue at about 3:30 pm and left a note on a piece of paper inside that caused alarm, officials said. Officers found the man outside and cuffed him.

Biked away

Some sneak stole a guy’s pricey bike on Lafayette Avenue on Oct. 5, police said.

The victim said he locked up his carbon frame two-wheeler outside near St. Felix Street before going to see a movie at about 9 pm. When he returned to get his bike, he saw his ride was gone, according to authorities.

Sneak thief

A good-for-nothing snatched a woman’s purse from a bench inside a Flatbush Avenue subway station on Oct. 7, police said.

The woman told cops she placed her bag down while waiting for a Brooklyn-bound 2 train inside the station near Fulton Street at about 2 pm, forgot about it for a few minutes, and when she went to grab it about 10 minutes later, it was gone — along with her credit cards, health insurance, card, and New York state identification card inside it, police said.

Where’s my car?

A jerk rode off with a guy’s car parked on Carlton Avenue sometime overnight on Oct. 1, police said.

The 40-year-old victim told cops he had parked his 2005 Kawa four-wheeler with New Jersey plates near Lafayette Avenue at about 11:15 pm, and when he went to get it the next morning, it was gone, officials said.
